Getting into New York

AirTrain and NJ Transit is best

Newark Airport is the furthest away of all airports serving New York city, and as a result, taxi rides are longer and more expensive. The train can be much quicker, especially in rush hour, and is a lot cheaper.


Take the AirTrain to Newark Liberty International Airport Station (7-11 minutes). From there, the NJ Transit will take you to Penn Station (around 30 minutes) and to the World Trade Center in 40 minutes. The AirTrain runs every three minutes from 05:00-02:00 and every 15 minutes from 00:00-05:00. Journey time should be under an hour, including transfer times between trains.

Location: The AirTrain stops in the upper levels of Terminals A, B and C
Cost: USD 5.50 to the Airport Station, plus USD 13 to Penn Station


The Airport Express Bus, run by Coach USA, offers a direct service to New York City from all airport terminals. Buses run from 04:00-02:00 and leave every 15 minutes from 06:45-11:15. They will drop you off at Bryant Park, Grand Central Station and the Port Authority Bus Station. Journey time is around 45 minutes (longer in rush hour).

Cost: USD 16 one-way, USD 28 round-trip
Locations: Terminal A, arrivals, level 1, lane 5; Terminal B, arrivals, level 1, lane 2; Terminal C, arrivals, level 1, bus stops 5 and 6 


Taxis are available outside each terminal, and costs vary depending on traffic. Journey time can be as short as 30 minutes or as long as 60, depending on the traffic.

Cost: USD 50-70 (plus tolls and tip)

Eating and Drinking

Terminal C offers best selection

Terminal C has the best selection of dining options. 

In Terminals A and B, it’s best to eat pre-security as prices after security increase substantially. The Earl of Sandwich is the only sit-down restaurant after security in the concourse of Terminal A, near Gates A20-A28. The sandwiches and wraps are tasty, but the places can be very crowded.

Connecting Between Airports

Getting to JFK and LaGuardia

Ignore offers of transportation from solicitors in the terminal as these drivers may be uninsured and unlicensed. A taxi fare to LaGuardia or JFK International Airports will cost around 85 USD plus the cost of any tolls (usually roundtrip). There is also a 5.50 USD surcharge for credit card transactions. The journey may take anywhere between 75-90 minutes.

For LaGuardia, take the AirTrain (5.50 USD) to NY Penn Station and grab the Express Bus Service (14 USD). The journey can take anywhere between 60-105 minutes.
For JFK, the fastest route is to take the LIRR (13-16 USD) from Penn Station to Jamaica Station and take the AirTrain (5 USD) up the airport.

Airport Hotel with a great view

Newark Liberty International Airport Marriott

Travelling between terminals

Take the AirTrain every 3 min

The landside AirTrain monorail takes you to all the terminals, parking and rental car facilities. It leaves from stops in the upper floors of all terminal buildings every three minutes from 05:00-24:00 and every 15 minutes from 24:00-05:00 (until 07:00 on Sundays).

It's free for journeys around the airport, but you have to buy tickets to go to the Airport Station for NJ Transit Rail connections to New York City.
